I love to add flair and color in unexpected places. This time I chose to do that for a simple coffee cup. I designed a quick, easy, and free coffee cup cozy crochet pattern to wrap your mug in warmth and style. To accommodate the handle, I added a button. There are many other ways to finish the crochet cozy, but I have a lot of buttons. A slight button obsession may run in my family 🙂

Set-Up: Ch42, sl st in 5th ch from hook (38 ch, 1 ch4 loop).

Round 1: Ch2 (counts as 1st hdc), hdc in next 36 ch, 3hdc in next ch, rotate the ch to work down the opposite side, 3hdc in 1st ch, hdc in next 37 ch, 8hdc in end loop to form buttonhole, join with sl st in 2nd ch. (88 hdc).

Round 2: Ch2 (counts as 1st hdc), hdc in next 37 sts, 2hdc in next st [(hdc, 2dc, hdc) in next st] x2, 2hdc in next st, hdc in next 40 sts, [2hdc in next st] x 4, hdc in next 2 sts, join with sl st in 2nd ch. (96 hdc, 4 dc).

Round 3: Ch1, sc in same st and next 91 sts, [ch3, sc in next st] x8, join with 1st sc* and cut yarn (100 sc. 8 ch3 sp).

*You can either sl st in sc or use the invisible join method, which I prefer for a smoother edge. I have a video tutorial showing how to perform an invisible join.

Put the cozy on your cup and mark where the buttonhole is on the other end. Move that mark about .5″ farther in from the button end to allow for a little stretching, and sew your button on at that mark. Work in the ends of yarn and thread.

Enjoy your new coffee cup cozy!!
